Peter Null stands to inherit his family's estate, but first he must successfully procreate as per his mother's wishes. He gets a golden opportunity when Katrina, a single pregnant woman, shows up at his door looking for help. They strike a deal and set out to convince the Null family matriarch that they are truly in love. They travel to the isolated, Null family manse located deep within a menacing forest.

Audience Reviews for The Unearthing


Gruesome low budget horror film, does indeed have some creepy moments. The production values are quite poor - bad lighting and cinematography hurt the film. But, there was at least some originality.

(***): [img][/img] What's not to like about a movie that centers around Filipino vampires in Wisconsin trying to feast off unborn children? For a low-budget horror movie, this one is much better than most.


Viewed 12/11. The germ of an interesting idea-- vampiric beasts who feed on fetuses --botched by lame performances, incoherent character motivations, and flat-out cliche.
